Where beauty and history meet

Westview Cemetery

After careful consultation and in full accordance with federal, state, and City of Atlanta guidance, directives and orders, the Atlanta Preservation Center has postponed all scheduled walking tours and events indefinitely. When events are postponed or rescheduled, you will be contacted via email with the new event information as soon that information is available. Unless notified otherwise, your tickets will be valid for the new event date or for any other future Atlanta Preservation Center tour.

Come learn about the lives of many important Atlantans like Joel Chandler Harris, Lemuel Pratt Grant, Henry Grady, Asa Candler and Harriett Harwell Wilson High while enjoying beautiful sculptures and historic structures.  Tours will include the 1890 Gate House and the World War II era Mausoleum and Chapel.  Prepare to be awestruck by the beauty and many layers of history this site represents. 

When Westview opened in October of 1884 with nearly six-hundred acres of land, it was designed to be the premier cemetery in the Southeast. It is still an active cemetery with more than 108,000 interments.  Westview remains the largest cemetery in the Southeast and one of the largest non-profit cemeteries in the United States.
